Minimoog drum sampling

Post by Operatron » Mon May 25, 2009 3:55 am

Have you ever sampled(good quality) drum patches(presets and custum creations) from the arturia minimoog V synth ?, if so are they any good ? , some people say that even the minimoog's software emulation (arturia minimoog V)sounds much better(richer,fat) than the acctual TB-303; TR-606 because the amount of oscillators,fm and wider pallette of tools at the time to create a sound or is it just like an TR-707 but with better sound and sample quality ? :)
Cheers

Sebastian.

I don't want to enter the software vs. hardware debate, but I sample Arturia Minimoog V drum sounds into my S3000XL with very nice results.

never heard any drum sounds out of a 303. also never heard any drum sound that uses oscillators out of a 707.

besides that, NOTHING beats a real 303, as NOTHING beats a real minimoog (even for drum sounds :D)

why would you want to sample something from a vst anyway?

Pflosi:
Do you even use software at all? Because if I recall correctly I got into a bit of spat with you over a similar situation where I asked about a software emulation of hardware and you predictably parroted "bla bla bla nothing beats <insert vintage synth here>" and I responded like an asshole and that was the end of that.
But this begs the question: just why do you come into the software forum? You parrot the same sorry stubborn a*s rhetoric over and over; what you say offers no insight even as to why its "better" - you're just being stubborn and it annoys the piss out of me when some one goes onto a forum just to denounce the topics.

If someone asks me "hey I am looking for a rackmount wavetable synth what do you suggest?", I'm not going to run my mouth off about what a great program ableton live is.

Please desist.




Now on topic: sampling the output of any synth for percussion is really fun. Often what ill do to get ideas flowing is I will set up a really basic 4/4 sequence to trigger my soundsource and just record as I tweak. Post session ill then try to catalog what sounds I like. I get better results when I don't overthink it because what I will do then is consolidate the recording while maintaining the timing so that I can throw the file on traktor. For me at least it seems easier to come up with basic back beat using dj software and I like the variation you can get both from beat juggling but messing with the loop controls and letting the loop ride out into further tweaked out triggers

Samples only sound good if the source material sounds good.

So you can have that sound available to load into any sampler when you would not otherwise have access to that VST, as well as a multitude of other reasons.

Just so you know, we won't be having bullshit elitist attitude wars and software vs hardware attitudes in the Samplers forum. To make this point clearly, I have locked this thread.
